Completion of this programme is a prerequisite for enrolment in the Certified Workplace Learning Specialist (CWLS) programme offered by IAL.


What is this programme about?


The growing interest in workplace learning is perhaps due to its potential to contribute to performance, possibly to improved productivity and of course it means less time off the job for formal training. However, despite this interest and the increasing awareness of the benefits of making the most of learning and building on learning that happens naturally in the workplace, many grapple with how to do and develop workplace learning.

In this foundational course, explore learning about, through and at work.  What is ‘workplace learning’, why ‘workplace learning’ and how ‘workplace learning’ happens in workplaces will be visited during the e-learning and face-to-face segment.  To have an authentic appreciation of the possibilities in using a workplace learning intervention, you will have an opportunity to address a performance issue at work using this approach.

In this blended programme, you will have opportunities to reflect on personal experiences of learning at work and connecting it with theories for deeper learning such as workplace affordances, constraints and limitations for learning; types of workplace learning methods through e-learning and classroom session.

To further explore how workplace learning can be considered to address a work performance issue, you have the opportunity to design a workplace learning approach through case study, hands-on practice through collaborative learning, one-on-one coaching and an assessment of learning at the end.
